Reviewer: BarneyC 1 review from this member

 The first camping trip for our family and so we chose the C&CC Canterbury site as it was only 50 min down the road and we knew the area for kid friendly fun.

Arrived a tad early (11:25) but was greeted warmly by Scott (site manager) who as first time campers and new members was most helpful.

Lovely site, well groomed and the layout suited us as a family fairly well.

We ended up on pitch 79 in a small grassy nook with another tent about 20 yards from the lower shower block, which is starting to look pretty tired to be honest (tip for blokes - don't bother with far end shower it's a trickle compared to others). That said they were cleaned at least three times a day and brilliantly convenient for us.

Playpark is a little to big for our 2 year old who is convinced he's 6 and can go everywhere his big brother can. But plenty of other kids around for company.

Don't stress about the power line issue - it really isn't that bad at all.

There is a fair bit of road noise first thing on weekday mornings from all those poor souls not on holiday commuting into town but otherwise a quiet enough spot.

Finally anyone with a fear of rabbits should avoid as come sundown the place transforms into Watership Down with dozens of them running around (do use a door mat otherwise rabbit poo makes a right mess of a tent carpet).

A good start to camping.

 We came for a 2 night stay and loved it. The site is beautifully maintained and the staff were extremely helpful. The children enjoyed the playground and especially building camps in the woods just behind the swings. All the facilities were very clean and the location is perfect - the bus stops just outside the campsite or you can walk into the City centre in about 25 minutes. The pitches are unmarked but the warden is very strict about maintaining a 6 metre gap between tents which he rigidly enforces but in a nice way!

The site has a very relaxed feel and is a great base to explore Canterbury and the surrounding areas. We'll definitely go back.

 Like many other C&C sites, this one follows the same trend. Lovely site with very nice staff. The shop was very nice, with it selling and promoting some local produce - would recommend the locally produced apple juice, very nice!

The facilities on the site, like other people have said, are a little dated and could do with some modernization. However, I found it very nice to go for a shower without having to wait in a queue. Not once is the five days were all 5 showers occupied so very nice. Only bit of criticism is about the toilet cubicles. I was a bit confused to why, in the Gents, there were 5 showers but only 4 toilet cubicles, which meant the chances of having to wait for a toilet cubicle was bigger. Also I didn't like the idea of having the toilets and showers directly next to each other - possibly a bit off-putting at times.

Putting that aside however, the site as a whole compensates for that small issue and it's definitely a site I recommend anyone visiting.

 Stayed for just over a week, with several days on my own as the other half had to return home for work . The site was very well kept although busy . Pitches didn't stay empty for very long ! We were on a pitch very close to the pylons at the end of the site and the other side of a hedge from the over night parking area.

Overall the staff were very friendly and very much enjoyed the visit. The pylons didn't bother us but the constant stream of motorcaravans and caravans that used the overnight parking area did . I don't believe that many of the campers perhaps realised that there were caravans just the other side of the hedge ! Late departures and early arrivals disturbed us on a number of occasions despite windows being closed . I would recommend the site but would advise anyone who was staying for several days and was a light sleeper to ask for a pitch further into the site .

Lots of rabbits who were obviously very used to people and dogs ! Lovely to sit in the van and watch them.

I would definitely go back to the site and felt very safe on my own for the days whilst the other half was at work and I was on my own .

 Just returned from a weeks stay at this site. We were shown to what was said to be the part of the site which had the most sunshine, and boy was the warden right. We were concerned about the overhead power lines but soon forgot they were there.

This is a lovely site with plenty of space and 2 clean toilet/shower blocks, we never had to queue even when there was a party of school kids in the bottom field.

The wardens were friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them.

It was our first visit to Canterbuy and we will definitely be visiting again.

 We stayed here in May 09. The wardens were friendly and helpful (even though I left my purse at home so did not have my membership card). We were shown to a lovely big pitch where we were very happy. The toilets and showers were spotless if a little narrow. There was a small shop selling essentials and lots of leaflets in the info section.

I would recommend this as an excellent base for exploring Kent, we found many things to do within an easy driving distance. We will definitely stay here again if we visit Kent in the future.

Reviewer: Swinpalms 1 review from this member

 A very nice site, and staff all very helpful.

There was a guy riding round on a bike making sure that tents were no closer than 6 metre apart(for fire risk) which was fair enough, but when we were told that a wind break also had to be 6 metres away from the tents because of fire risk (we had only put it up to keep the children away from the bbq) it seemed a bit silly.

Anyway the facilities are all very clean, and we would go back, but it's certainly not a free and easy pitch where you like attitude!

There's a nice little park area, and a den in the woods which the children loved.

 First time staying at this site. We had a tent and visited during half term with our 2 children aged 9 and 11 and stayed for 5 nights.

The site is very well kept, beautiful and green with lots of trees and wildlife (particularly bunnies!) Pitches were spacious. A mixture of hard standing and grass. We were in a tent and were shown to a pitch with plenty of sun and space around for children to play. We had requested to be pitched away from any pylons, as we had heard about them on a previous review, but they weren't really an issue from anywhere on site I would say.

I agree with the previous comment about showers. They were fine, but we found them to be a little cramped, especially if you needed to take children in with you! My husband said the water pressure was variable in the gents showers but when he tried the other shower block he reported that they were better. It wasn't a huge problem though and they were always clean when we went in.

The wardens were always friendly, helpful and happy to help.

Shop was ok. Variety a bit basic but nice fresh eggs, bread and bacon from local sources. Recommend the locally bottled apple juice. I've ever tasted!

The shop also does freezer ice packs at 50p + 1.00 deposit, something we didn't realise till nearer the end of our stay.

Had some great days out:-

Canterbury. Lovely shops, restaurants, cathedral (a bit pricey at 21 for a family, but good) and a small cinema for any wet days! We drove there (7 to park all day) but it was walkable!

Dover Castle. Great day out for kids of all ages. Lots of tunnels to explore and bits to climb!

Sandwich. Very pretty olde worlde town on the river.

Whitstable. Famous for its shellfish (oysters), quirky shops and beach.

All in all, we came back rested and relaxed and would not hesitate to visit Canterbury Camping and Caravan Park again.

 Stayed here for three nights and it was the first time we had ever used a camping and caravan club site. The staff go out of their way to make you feel welcome and even show you to your pitch.
The site itself is lovely and has a relaxed friendly feel, the weather was also great which always helps. The previous comments about the showers may be true but they are clean and serve the purpose for which they are provided.
I cannot recommend this site enough, great location close to canterbury, no doubt we will return.

Reviewer: Kaziwal 2 reviews from this member

 Just stayed for one night not having pre-booked and was not our first choice. Was pleasantly surprised. A lovely site with extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Toilet facilities were clean and tidy. My only criticism would be the dog walk which was very short to say the least. Would be ok for older dogs or dogs which don't need much exercising. Lots of bunnies running around - not good for my staffie who wanted to chase them!
Didn't venture outside the camp so can't comment on nearby facilities. All in all had a lovely time but would not go back if I were taking my dog with me.
